Luvit 2.0 - Node.JS for the Lua Inventor
Welcome to the source code for Luvit 2.0. This repo contains the luvit/luvit metapackage and all luvit/* packages as published to lit.
This collection of packages and modules implementes a node.js style API for the luvi/lit runtime. It can be used as both a library or a standalone executible.
See the main project webpage for more details. https://luvit.io/

Luvit supports FFI and Lua based binary modules. There is a wiki entry explaining how to manage and include a binary module within a bundled application. Publishing Compiled Code
Hacking on Luvit Core
First you need to clone and build luvit, this is easy and works cross-platform thanks to
git clone https://github.com/luvit/luvit.git cd luvit make
If you want to test luvit without constantly building, set the magic
LUVI_APP variable that makes all luvi binaries use a certain folder for the app bundle. This is best done with a bash alias so as to not break other luvi based apps like
alias luvit=LUVI_APP=`pwd`" "luvit
Also you can use
lit run in the luvit root folder.
Always make sure to run
make test before submitting a PR.
Notes to Maintainers
LUVI_APP=/path/to/luvit luvitto test changes without rebuilding the binary.
- To run the test suite, either run
make testto build a luvit and use that.
- If you want to test a custom built luvi, run
LUVI_APP=. /path/to/luvi tests/run.lua
- There is a wiki page on making new luvit releases at https://github.com/luvit/luvit/wiki/Making-a-luvit-release.
The packages in deps live primarily in this repo, but some are duplicated in
luvit/lit to ease
lit bootstrapping. Updates can be pushed from either repo
to lit, just make sure to keep them in sync. One way to do this is to
deps && lit install. This will install the latest version of all the
packages from lit. Check the diff carefully to make sure you're not undoing
any work. There might have been unpublished changes locally in luvit that
aren't in the lit central database yet.
